Jerry Garcia, founder and “spiritual advisor” of the psychedelic rock band the Grateful Dead, was an avid listener and student of American traditional music. He and his bandmates were well versed in 20th century American blues and bluegrass, as well as the folk traditions of the British Isles. Like the Grateful Dead, the Homegrown String Band has drunk deeply from the well of blues, ballads, and breakdowns that have helped to shape the sounds of American popular music. In this program we will be sharing our original interpretations of some of the traditional and early commercial recordings that was featured in the repertoire of Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead.
